    Dimmable LED lights

    I am going to be building a couple of plywood enclosures next year. I am going to waterproof the inside with drylock (but am open to interior and exterior waterproofing, staining, and painting options and opinions). I will probably just polyurethane or stain and poly the exterior. Like the animal plastics cages option I want to use a couple of strips of white dimmable LED lighting, one front and one back. I really want to be able to dim the lights with my herpistat 4 using the ramping feature for natural sunrise and sunset appearance. I will be heating with a pro products radiant heat panel as recomended bt BOB @ pro heat. Humidity will be handled with 2-4 nozzles and a pro mist set up also controlled by the Hepistst 4.

    This enclosure will be 8 feet long by 2 feet deep and 2 feet high. I chooses this size because the 4 X 8 sheets of plywood can be cut into 2 foot widths for the top, back, and bottom. The final 2 foot by 8 foot piece will be cut into four 2 foot pieces for the 2 ends and 2 feet at either end up front leaving a 4 foot opening for sliding glass.

    Mainly I am looking for dimmable LED solutions but am open to any suggestions.

    I do not think I'll be able to dim those with my herpistat controller? Looks like it has its own dimmer built in? Thanks
